The average implied point total for teams in Week 15 is 22.02, the lowest expected scoring week in over three years. With low totals and even lower temperatures, the temptation to lock in the two most reliable players in the game, LeVeon Bell and David Johnson, into your cash lineups is understandable.

Our top projected values at wide receiver and tight end offer a nice solution if you want to jam in Bell and Johnson, but here I’m going to lay out a more balanced approach.

As always, be sure to consult the “Others I’d Consider” section, as no lineup should ever be entered blindly into any contest -- you should be adjusting your roster construction based on the type of cash game that you are playing.
